Week two of the LCS spring split concluded with Team Liquid and Fly Quest holding the top spot. TSM and CLG registered their first split victory, while Cloud9 and 100 Thieves surprisingly dropped a game.
Team Liquid started with their intended lineup for the first time as Jo “CoreJJ” Yong-in recently obtained his green card. In a rematch from the Lock In finals, Team Liquid went against Evil Geniuses in week 2 of LCS and continued to impress. The team convincingly won the game, with bot lane, in particular, being the bright spot. Team Liquid then faced CLG and once again came victorious.
Apart from Team Liquid, Fly Quest managed to win both their games. The team defeated Dignitas and defending LCS champions 100 Thieves, putting them in the first spot with Team Liquid. After a disappointing showing at the Lock In tournament, Fly Quest has taken everyone by surprise in LCS. That said, we are only three weeks into the season, and a lot can change in the future.
Cloud9’s shocking move to release head coach Nick “LS” De Cesare just three weeks into the season surprised many and it reflected their games. The team’s performance throughout week 3 was mediocre at best as they lost to CLG and barely won against TSM.
Although TSM registered their first win of the season, they lost to Cloud9 despite having a massive lead in the game’s early stages. Their poor form continues to haunt the organization, and it would take some major shift in temperament for TSM to make a deep run in the playoffs.
